Banter and Chit-Chat! / A Lament for Adventure Games
« on: August 19, 2019, 10:44:08 PM »
I'm going to lament the state of adventure games.  I know there's always some activity, but in my world... it feels dead.

We were carrying the torch for a while, but even most of the folks who used to frequent here don't any more. And I mean enthusiasts/gamers as well as team members of IQ.  Most of us have moved on.

I'll finish the games we have now, but man... I don't see much of a future here at all.  But it was a lot of fun for many years.  We did good things. Met good people. Had a great time.

Just admitting to myself that a thing I liked is pretty much over.


Banter and Chit-Chat! / Bt's Wife Goes Viral
« on: March 06, 2016, 12:57:10 PM »
I don't know if you guys have seen this, but an image I posted of my wife has gone viral!  She wanted to ride "Splash Mountain at The Magic Kingdom (Walt Disney World) but I was tired and didn't feel like it, so she marched off, and when she returned, she had this picture.  She said, "Here! I did this for YOU!"  We had a good laugh, and soon left the park for the day.

It's crazy, this thing has been all over the net and facebook.  Anyway, thought I'd share it here if y'all haven't seen it.


Quest for Infamy / Quest for Infamy v2.0 progress thread
« on: February 16, 2016, 02:45:24 PM »
Hey guys, I know some of you around here would like this, so I'm going to try to keep this updated with work I'm doing for Quest for Infamy 2.0.

It's not a new game, but I'm cleaning up the code, truing to fix any lingering bugs and get it a bit leaner and meaner than it was.  Today I spent time reprogramming the whole achievements system in game.  We streamlined the process a bit, Klytos and I, and got the code leaner and meaner for it.  It was tedious work, but hopefully it'll work pretty well.  I'm also trying to compile a list of common bugs and errors so I can check those all and test/fix them.

I'll be loading v2.0 betas onto Steam, so if you want to opt in, play and test, you're more than welcome to.  I'll amend this with directions on how to do so once I upload a new build.

IQ Chat / Backer's Forums

Just a note:

I've had a few people ask me about the backers forums; we took the old ones down and will be revamping and making new ones after this Kickstarter - nobody lost their access; they're just not up currently!  You didn't do anything wrong!


Banter and Chit-Chat! / Can't Sleep Thread
« on: April 14, 2015, 01:17:46 AM »
So, I can't sleep tonight.

Had a procedure that injected massive amounts of steriods into my back, not to mention jacked me up on sedatives, which were more like a recreational afternoon for a dude of my size.  Anyway, now hearts racing, minds racing and I'm up all night.

This is where those late night can't sleep thoughts go.  I'm sure there's a few insomniacs out there from time to time.
